Want a Mail-in ballot sent to your house? Tuesday is the deadline.
SALT LAKE CITY — Utah’s primary election is about one week away and voters who want a mail-in ballot only have a few more hours to request one.
Tuesday, June 23 is the last day to request a mail-in ballot sent to a voter’s home.
Salt Lake County Clerk Sherrie Swenson told KSL Newsradio that if a voter was unaffiliated, they were contacted by their county election clerk who asked if they wanted to request a partisan ballot. If a voter didn’t respond to that letter, it’s likely they did not receive a ballot.
“If for some reason they didn’t receive their ballot and should have, tomorrow [Tuesday, June 23] is that last day they could request their ballot to be mailed to them,” Swenson said.
The deadline to register to vote has passed. But, Swenson says there are seven counties in Utah that will allow a resident to drive up to a polling location and receive a ballot on election day. Those counties are Utah, Salt Lake, Weber, Davis, Tooele, Iron, and Box Elder counties.
The 2020 Primary Election being, primarily, a mail-in-only election is the direct result of the global COVID-19 pandemic. Other changes due to COVID-19 include no regular polling places and limited drive-up voting on June 30th.
